Malwarebytes 4 is the next generation of the popular malware killer, Malwarebytes Anti-Malware.

The product is a combination of every Malwarebytes technology, including anti-malware, anti-exploit, anti-ransomware, web protection and more.

The interface is straightforward and familiar. A dashboard displays your current status, you can launch a scan with a click, and most of the time there's nothing else to do at all.

This doesn't mean you won't notice any changes. Despite all the extra technologies, for instance, Malwarebytes says system scans are now 3x to 4x faster.

Experienced users will also find an array of options, switches and settings to help tweak the program.

To take a single example, you don't just have an option to turn the anti-exploit on or off. You can also configure 6 separate six component technologies (DEP, anti-heapspraying, ASLR, more), eight memory protection methods, five application behaviour checks, five Java technologies, and individually define the types of apps where each of these will be used (browsers, Office, PDF readers, media players, more).

Please note, this version will automatically update any existing Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, Anti-Exploit and Anti-Ransomware installations to a 14-day trial of Malwarebytes 4.

Verdict:

Malwarebytes 4 is fast and with plenty of features.

Hi Charles,

Malwarebytes is freeware. It runs as the Premium version for 14 days. After this, it runs as a limited 'free' version. It's always been supplied like this. The free version is freeware, just more limited. ie. the paid version offers more functionality.

Bloatware

What started out as a great idea as with many other software's but instead of sticking to the original intent of the software the owners get greedy and try and throw everything but the kitchen sink into it. Years ago Malwarebytes was an invaluable piece of software considered needed to keep your system safe, these days, you couldn't pay me enough to have it on my system. It creates everything from numerous false positives , including Iobit software due to whatever happened between the two years ago that frankly they need to get over, to locking down useful Windows software and features. Malewarebytes these days is a waste of time and a waste of your hard earned money. Third party anti-virus and malware software is going by the way of the do-do bird.

I waited till they had fixed glitches then I update (April 2017). Have had one occurrence of web protection not turning on after a computer reboot. That problem seems to have been fixed in an update.
Excellent program
